If any place was made for exploration by ship, it’s the coasts and islands of Thailand and Malaysia.

Most travellers only get to experience those pearly white beaches, those jungled hills, those glassy waters, from dry land. But with our brand-new Adventure Cruises in Asia, a whole new world of possibilities has washed up at your feet. Join us as we cruise from Phuket to Penang – just try to get to the end without booking.

1. The stylish 160-foot Panorama II carries a maximum of 48 passengers. A far cry from the huge cruise liners one might spot far in the distance when cruising to places only a small ship can reach.

3. As well as breakfast each morning, the onboard chef and his team whip up a fusion cuisine-inspired spread for lunch or dinner each day. Expect the likes of fresh seafood, curries, noodles and more.

4. Out on the water, you’re pretty much always guaranteed stunning sunsets, the light spreading across the sea and bringing out the colour of the karst rock.

5. Island visits offer the chance to meet locals and learn about island life off the southwest coast of Thailand. Get pandan weaving tips from a master, or help with a unique reforestation program.

6. Alongside local-led onshore excursions, there’s plenty of free time to explore by longtail boat or join in activities, like learning how to create local flavours back home with tasty cooking classes.

7. Hundreds of islands dot the waters of Andaman Sea, and the beauty of a small ship is that it can drop anchor – maybe for a beach barbecue – wherever it likes.
